Age 5 to 7 Milestones

Your child will amaze you by how quickly they learn at this age. They are starting to use exciting language and have learnt a lot about how to listen too. They will ask for help if they don’t understand.

  • By five years: speaking in proper sentences and telling you stories
  • By seven years: making lots of progress with reading and spelling
The more you praise your child for trying to read, the more they will enjoy it. It’s fine to make mistakes, and it’s supposed to be fun!
